February 20, 2020 Update: To provide you with more time to make changes, we will now be shutting down the Instagram Legacy API Platform on March 31, 2020 instead of March 2, 2020 as originally communicated.
We’re always looking for ways to improve the developer experience with the Instagram Graph API. To that end, we’re excited to announce that long-lived access tokens are now available for the Instagram Basic Display API.
Long-Lived Access Tokens
When we launched Instagram Basic Display API, Instagram User Access Tokens were only short-lived and valid for just one hour. Access tokens will still be short-lived by default, but you now have the option to exchange them for long-lived tokens that are valid for 60 days. To learn more about long-lived tokens, please check the developer documentation guide here.
